The Sport for Good Atlanta Alliance will focus on five areas: Education, Employment & Income, Health & Well-Being, Community Cohesion, and Sustainability.

Because we envision thriving communities on Atlanta’s Westside, these focus areas intentionally address a range of factors that enable youth, their families, and their communities to flourish. Within each focus area, each working group identified specific outcomes, which serve as the long-term goals for their work, and objectives, which function as guideposts as they implement the strategies. Check out our PLAYBOOK for the details.

All told, we expect to affect over 7,000 households within the target communities over the next three years.

Community Cohesion Outcomes:

  • Youth and their families have safe, engaging, and collaborative communities.

  • Increase engagement to build trust within the community.

  • Increase resources that address basic needs of youth and families.
